A number of you in the LYS Nation are now Twitter users.  If you haven’t done so yet, we want you to join us.  To let you see what you are missing, here are the Top 10 LYS Tweets from the week of August 24, 2014.

1. “The Court further finds that the Legislature has failed to meet its constitutional duty to suitably provide for Texas public schools… …because the school finance system is structured, operated, and funded so that it cannot provide a constitutionally adequate education” (By @MoakCasey)

2. “Sure, America believes in education: the average teacher earns more money in a year than a professional athlete earns in a whole day.” (By @DrRichAllen)

3. Be aware of the teacher-talking and student-talking ratio in class. Those who do the talking tend to do the most learning. (By @justintarte)

4. If adults look to Internet to find answers they are resourceful; if kids do that, they are cheaters. (By @gcouros)

5. New PowerWalks format is awesome.  Enjoying the information tool.  Very helpful to new personnel. (By @coachwommack)

6. As late as 1992, written word was said to be dying. Internet resurrected essays (blogs), aphorisms (tweets), and letters (email). (By @pmarca)

7. Judge: Texas “has buried its head in the sand” while schools’ problems get worse (By @PatrickMichels)

8. You aren’t a valuable member of a team if you never change your mind… (By @justintarte)

9. Looking forward to implementing Fundamental 5. (By @drjolly)

10. The number that’s now officially in the rearview mirror, over 65,000 copies of The Fundamental 5 (Cain & Laird) sold! Thank you, LYS Nation! (By @LYSNation)
